you can't use the taylor/chavez example in this case. chavez actually had an iron chin while cotto's is weak, and mayweather hits way harder than meldrick did. taylor pitty patted chavez all night while floyd will do some damage.
I wouldn't go so far as to say that Mayweather hits WAY harder than Meldrick. Meldrick relied on his speedy combinations, whereas PBF places his shots better. Mel was busy try to throw an 8 punch combo, while PBF throw a good 3 piece.
I don't necessarily think Cotto has a weak chin. Anybody can get caught. The thing is he has no defense and don't really care, so he gets hit more often. Trust me, Shane would have stretched him if he had a weak chin, and Shane hits harder than PBF.
I don't know why were pretending that Hatton was gonnd be a tough fight for Floyd. Luis Collazo rocked Hatton world, but HBO made sure that Ricky got a gift decision so they could cash in on the Floyd fight. The plan work but Hatton got exposed. Anybody who knows boxing knows that Hatton is the European Arturo Gatti. He not only got KTFO by Floyd, he would get mopped up by Tony Margarido, Paul Williams, Zab Judah, Shane, and a few others.
Cotto would be a good, hard fight, but he can't beat PBF.
